On Veterans Day, Tampa Bay Bucs Battle Troops in Madden, CoD World at War

November 11, 2008 -

The Orlando Sentinel reports that several members of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will celebrate Veterans Day by gaming with U.S. troops stationed overseas.

Pro vs. G.I. Joe, the nonprofit group which arranged the event, reports that Madden 09 and the brand-new Call of Duty: World at War will be the weapons of choice. Tamps Bay CB Phillip Buchanon, LB Cato June, TE Alex Smith and CB Aqib Talib will take on service personnel in Germany, Japan, Kuwait and a secret Middle-east location to be revealed during the match.

UPDATE: Activision deserves some kudos here as well. In a press release the publisher points out that it supplied CoD:WaW for today's event and will continue to do so for future Pro vs. G.I. Joe matchups.

Re: On Veterans Day, Tampa Bay Bucs Battle Troops in Madden,

uh oh wheres JT to claim that now those soldiers are going to be killing machines! oh wait.. they were TRAINED to be that way... damn.... well one more lost for him. Well that was a fast one.

kinda funny though since JT claims to "support our troops" but then condemns anyone who plays games... and i can't think of anyone during my time that didn't play games (mostly Halo, Wolfenstein, and need for speed)

and yes i know he's outta the picture (sorta) but i still enjoy the random kick to the groin :)

heh reminds me of the tournaments my squad used to hold, enlisted vs commissioned. Voted for the game and almost always ended up in Halo 2... mostly since we had more copies of that than any other game.

oh.. and when we weren't forced to forfit due to having to get back to work (cheap arse officers cheat IMO) we usually won :)

Heh, I would never have thought of this kind of event myself, but it sounds like it will be fun for those involved.

Andrew EisenIanC - The original version of the article included a tweet showing that the exhibitor had been asked to leave so no, the article was not published before that happened.04/19/2015 - 7:47pm
Matthew Wilson@IAMC as I understand it they disrupted the panel. if they were kicked out just for being a part of GG I would have a issue, but from what I read that wasnt the case.04/19/2015 - 4:24pm
IanCOh and the "false premises" thing? The article on MarySue that said that went up before they got told to leave. How weird that...04/19/2015 - 4:22pm
IanCOf course the fact that group is mostly women goes against everything the antis say about GG, doesn't it? Also from what I've heard they polity asked a couple of questions at a panel, then got kicked out without even getting to pick up tier coats04/19/2015 - 4:21pm

MechaCrashI can understand why Sony wants the Pokemon and Smash movie rights, but it's not hard to see why Nintendo wouldn't want to sell to them. Kinda their competitors in the console arena.04/17/2015 - 8:01pm
PHX Corp@MW We won't know until the nintendo General Shareholders meeting if the leaks(From Sony Pictures) is true or not04/17/2015 - 7:55pm
